All Austin Butler roles so far and what’s next

Former Disney Channel heartthrob Austin Butler earned an Oscar nomination for “Elvis,” but what else is in store?

Austin Butler may have swung his hips (and arguably lost his natural voice) as the King of Rock ‘n Roll for Baz Luhrmann’s Elvis , but the Oscar-nominated actor has been a chameleon on screen for nearly two decades.

Beginning with Disney Channel and Nickelodeon series such as “Hannah Montana” and “Zoey 101,” Butler began as a teen star in 2005 before working with major directors such as Jim Jarmusch and Quentin Tarantino.

“I was a little embarrassed about some of the things I had to do,” Butler admitted in 2022. “But I had to cut my teeth somewhere, so I decided to treat these jobs as a way to grow.”

Butler made her TV debut on Hannah Montana, iCarly, and Zoey 101, and later joined the CW dramas Life Unexpected and Switched at Birth. Butler then joined the “Sex and the City” universe in the prequel series “The Carrie Diaries” and settled into the heartthrob friend stereotype.

Butler added, “I look back on the Nickelodeon and Disney shows I did; although I didn’t have the ability, I still wanted to give energy (as it were) to making “Raging Bull”. I have maintained a fierce commitment to seek more truth, even in matters where it would be easier to just make a phone call.”

He summed it up: “I did these TV shows that were a lot of fun and some people really dug them. But I didn’t feel fulfilled as an artist. I just wasn’t challenged as much as I wanted to be.”

Now that Butler has garnered Oscar attention as Elvis Presley, it’s clear that Butler can do whatever he wants. The historical epic “Dune: Part Two” and “Masters of the Air” are already in the works, Butler has “A Little Less Talk” and more in store.
